Accordingly, he \expndtw-4 consulted the omens and the oracle Bodhisattva Avaloki-\expndtw1 tesvara, who directed him not to ascend the throne or \expndtw-1 adopt the style Maharaja. In conformity with these ins\-tructions he assumed the royal office with the sobriquet \expndtw-3 Slladitya, and called himself "Kumara". Now, this un\-\expndtw-1 ostentatious title definitely suggests that although, ac\-\expndtw-5 cording to Bana, Harsa was already king of ThanesVar, in \expndtw-2 Kanauj he was merely charged with the duty of keeping \expndtw-1 the machinery of the government running, and that his political status there was originally no better than that of \expndtw8 a guardian or regent. But it would appear that with \expndtw2 the lapse of time, when he had consolidated his posi\-\expndtw3 tion and laid opposition, if any, to rest, he transferred \expndtw-3 his capital from ThanesVar to Kanauj and became the \expndtw0 sovereign ruler of the latter kingdom also by assuming the full Imperial titles. Thus was brought about the \expndtw-4 amalgamation of both the kingdoms, which helped Harsa \expndtw1 greatly in extending the sphere of his influence and \expndtw-2 authority over the numerous warring states that continu\-\expndtw6 ally disturbed the political equilibrium of the North.}\par \pard \plain \cbpat8\ql\li18\fi0\ri0\sb205\sa0 \f1\fs20{\b0\i\cf1\charscalex100\expndtw4\f1\cchs0\lang1033\fs23 Campaigns of Harsa}\par \pard \plain \cbpat8\qj\li0\fi468\ri4\sb112\sa0\sl-241\slmult0 \f1\fs20{\b0\i0\cf1\charscalex100\expndtw12\f1\cchs0\lang1033\fs25 Regarding the conquests of Harsa, we do not \expndtw19 get any definite details.
